Extensive Expertise in Surgical Center Development

United Urology Group’s extensive expertise in building and managing ambulatory surgery centers actually began in 2006 when United Urology’s core affiliate, Chesapeake Urology, was formed, including its Summit ASCs.  Since then, 18 state-of-the-art ASCs have been built.  Today, our team of business, medical (physicians and nurses) and operations specialists collectively provide the managerial and operational support necessary to effectively build and manage a urologic ASC.


Our highly-experienced Clinical Director, Brad Lerner, M.D., who is regarded in the national medical community as a progressive leader in surgical centers, has been leading the development and management of ASCs since 1990.  He is responsible for the daily delivery of high quality, safe patient care through a broad range of clinical, business, regulatory and operational practices.

The value-add that the United Urology team brings to our practices include:

  • AccreditationStrategic planning and financing
  • Payor contracts
  • Real estate services, construction, planning, and engineering
  • Quality assurance/risk management
  • Equipment and supplies planning and purchase
  • Patient scheduling
  • Optimization and monitoring of clinical workflows
  • Training of physicians and clinical staff
  • Branding, marketing and patient awareness

"Our mission is to provide compassionate, ethical surgical care in a comfortable and supportive environment."
